The Sunday, January 31, deadline for applications for Women Create’s third biennial juried art exhibit will soon be here.
Applications, submitted electronically, are being accepted from women of all ages in all visual media. Artists from Western New York, Northwestern Pennsylvania, and Northeastern Ohio are encouraged to apply.
All work must be original and created within the last five years. Selected artists will be asked to submit short biographies and artist statements. They must be able to deliver or ship their pieces ready to hang or install at the Dykeman-Young Gallery and Vintage Emporium in downtown Jamestown, New York, where it will be available for purchase.
Internationally exhibited artist, curator and educator Debra Eck and photographer and blogger Jennifer Schlick are creative directors for Women Create. They will be assisted by mixed media artist Katherine Turnquist. Artist Audrey Dowling, the owner and operator of the Portage Hill Gallery in Westfield, New York, is the juror for the exhibit.
Artists will be notified of the juror’s decisions during the week of March 1, 2016. The opening reception for the exhibit will be on Friday, April 15, 2016, and it will run through Saturday, May 14. A series of salons with the presenting artists will take place in the gallery during that time.
